The OFFICIAL *BEWARE of SCAMMER(s)* Thread - Updated Constantly
 
Okay I want some feedback from you, the members on how this thread should go. This thread should involve no bashing, no calling out, nothing like that. If you've been scammed, known scammers with evidence whether it be from cards, paypal, cash, or feedback extortion than we can list them. I'll keep this list updated through this post. We need to protect ourselves.

[B][U]KNOWN SCAMMERS! BEWARE[/U][/B]

[B]3.[/B] Richard Kessler aka cj_sportslover aka rich_4041 aka kess4041 on YouTube
- [I]Ripped off multiple people on group breaks and transactions, where he never sent anything, never communicated, and then straight up left Ebay. People are threatening police action against him now since he pocketed lots of money from them. Yet guys like this often come back under different usernames, so if a guy named Richard Kessler asks you for money, BE WARY[/I]

- [I]Non paying buyer with a long history of non payment.[/I]

[B]2.[/B] austinaustin6

[B]3.[/B] cgcmonster68
- [I]Used to have a host of negatives for not paying, but then Ebay took them all away (check out his feedback, it's kind of eerie). Regardless, cgcmonster68 is a definite non paying buyer, stay away![/I]

[B]4.[/B] enyouartist
- [I]redeemed Diamond Codes I sold him and comaplained because he got the same cards. The codes worked but he didnt like what he got and demanded more free codes or he was going to file a Paypal claim.[/I]

Two such issues include Issue #1 and Issue #2. atrain2004's shipping has been slow for a long period of time, and atrain2004 provides little communication to the buyer. He has ripped MANY people off, STAY AWAY![/I]

[B]8.[/B] waintrain
- [I]Had multiple issues in October 2011 where he didn't sent items out to paying buyers, including a Blowout Forum moderator. Very little communication. Added 11/21/11.[/I]

[B]9.[/B] mcgahee21nfl

[B][U]BAD EBAYERS[/U][/B]
[B]1.[/B] Slugga1982
- [I]Ran a corrupt group break in October 2011, also has several negatives for shipping issues. When questioned about issues he tried to sweet talk buyers to hold them past the 45 day paypal claim date. He also has canceled those buyers bids on future auctions and banned them from his auctions.[/I]

[B]2.[/B] cardsmannyc
- [I]Ships very slowly (we're talking over a month) or not at all, which is bad considering his high shipping price. Worst of all, a proven shiller, who used a second account, marksrite46, to artificially inflate his feedback. Stay far away from this seller![/I]

[B]3.[/B] apm-cards
- [I]Listed a proven altered/fake patch on Ebay. Everyone reported it and he responded to several messages about it. One response was harsh to another member. The response to me was nice and assured me that he destroyed the card and that he wasn't aware it was fake until we told him. I felt good and told everyone he was a good guy. Months later he listed another proven altered/fake patch on Ebay. This time he covered up the serial # to make it hard to search for the card (even though others have matched it via the auto) and then he refused to answer my messages. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice...that's not gonna happen. This guy is a CROOK![/I]

[B]4.[/B] rdwgouch and rwallace97802012
- [I]New Ebay Seller 2 ID's and selling stuff they do not have and scamming people and has taking people for thousands of dollars between each acct. I only caught it when I was looking at Bryce Harper Autos and he has sold 3 of the SSP print in the last 3 days and stole the pics from another sellers auctions beware! All Stuff is BIN at prices people will think is a steal and will hit BIN.[/I] [url]http://www.ebay.com/itm/2012-Topps-Series-2-RC-SP-661-Bryce-Harper-NATIONALS-Auto-/170863791931?pt=US_Baseball&hash=item27c8468f3b#ht_1343wt_927[/url]

Wow, Tigerblood is on the list? I 've never dealt with him before, but he is on blogtv joining groupbreak and raffling his card all the time!!

Sidthekidc87 05-26-2012 03:19 PM

I've been wanting a list like this for some time.

lol yes thats right.....:eek: on that token, i got a card from someone yesterday and there was chocolate all over the toploader, what a joke.

SpastikMooss 05-26-2012 03:48 PM

I had something like this a few months back - feel free to add the names I had, as they were all baddies!

Also...careful who you accuse. Some scammers are obvious, but sometimes actions aren't so black and white. Aka please don't list anyone who made an honest mistake, because lists like this can ruin a person's rep forever. That's awesome when they're a scammer...but it's bad if it's just a misunderstanding.

Lol. There's can be the official one. I thought mine would take off but I was too caught up in getting lots of evidence for the people on my list.

Will add.

[QUOTE=Sidthekidc87;2731723]I've been wanting a list like this for some time.[/QUOTE]

Thanks. I guess there was one already but hopefully we can get this stickied to the main page.

[QUOTE=TheBurg;2731732]Seahawkfanforlife on BlogTV. eBay name smithcorey1983.[/QUOTE]

Will add if you can send me some details about why he should be on the list.

[QUOTE=Sidthekidc87;2731734]Freeman12406 - heard he sends people their cards with dog crap all over them....same with palm

Palm actually sends his with 1/1 pubes. I'm the dog crap guy thanks to the two rugrats me wife and I have.

Thanks and Im sorry as I had no idea this list existed. Another reason why should push to get one of these stickied. I'll copy the info over.

Lol no worries, I have too many lists I manage on this site anyways :D.

Good luck with the sticky, pm iluvfish2 or pskell and maybe they can help you out. Mine wasn't stickied because these threads do have a tendency to get dicey if you're not careful about who you add. I.e. you really need to be sure they're scum to be on this list, as vilifying nice collectors who screwed up once is a big no-no, especially since this thread will forever be Googlable.

So it's kind of a delicate balance - you need to add the people that are scammers, but you can't just add everyone people tell you to because a lot of users are quick to throw people under the bus without checking facts. But I think you'll figure it out!

cruiserdaddy7 05-26-2012 05:32 PM

Kudos for those keeping lists, including Spastik and the OP.. Hopefully this will help in the future, even if only 1 person.

Atrain scammed me out of $500 worth of cards about 4 or 5 years ago. some of you on Beckett may remember. He sent me a bubble mailer that had just a toploader with a smiley face on it. Dumbo listed one of the cards I sent him which was a Brian westbrook bc rc auto. Good thing I still had my scan and a memberoverlapped his scan with mine and sure enough...autos were a perfect match. After months of back and forth, talking to scf mods and his local pd SCF paid me off what all I sent him to cover their arse since at the time he was in fact a mod for the site! While I was only 16 and what I.sent was the majority of.my collection! after they paid me off I get banned for calling him out and warning everyone to stay clear. Couldn't believe it! Sucks that more people ended up getting scammed by him over the years. Can't imagine how many if he got banned only a year ago! Scf is a joke and as corrupt as your and my local PD!

Still have the scans of the westbrook auto in my buckett too. along with another scammers adress on a bubble mailer that was sent to me empty, believe his id was dmann something? Sound familiar to anyone?

ManInTheMirror 06-01-2012 10:01 AM

I get scammed by my left hand on a daily basis.

volblorx8634 06-01-2012 01:48 PM

granat17 scammed me. He never sent me my card in a trade we had. Also had horrible communication, and took weeks to reply to my PMs. Terrible member.

Sounded like Ebay problems mostly.

You can go ahead and add my ebay name "palmdavis" to this list for failing to pay for auctions. Only fair.
